The same grizzly bear from yesterday’s post eating the salmon it caught. It is not uncommon to have 6 or 8 bears at the entrance to the spawning channel catching and eating salmon. There is not much aggression between the bears because of the abundance of food. There may be some challenges to the better fishing spots but when even the poor spots provide more than enough salmon the aggression does not become violent enough to shed blood. I have talked with guides that work the rivers in northern BC and southern Alaska and their grizzly bears have numerous scars and many open wounds due to fights over the rights to fish salmon.
